? Don't you just put one of these in your named.conf:

options {
       directory "/var/namedb";

As for 'master','slave', etc... you can specify those directories directly

zone "my-domain.net" {
       type master;
       file "master/my-domain.net";

would put this in the "master" subdirectory of the directory listed in

The configuration file can also be stored in /var... just invoke 'named'
with the right command line:

named [-c conffile]

e.g. '/usr/sbin/named -c /var/named/named.conf'

Since BIND already handled all of this I'm not sure how this could be xBSD
